We are looking for an enthusiastic finance professional (AAT or Certificate level CCAB / CGMA qualified) to join the Trusts Finance Team, playing a key role in shaping what our service delivery looks like and making a difference in the challenging financial environment, both now and in the future.

The successful candidate will support either the High Secure Services Directorate within the Trust's Forensics division or the Mental Health Services for Older People (MHSOP) Directorate within the Trust's Mental Health division and provide comprehensive financial advice and support managers to understand the efficiency and effectiveness of resources within their control. They will need to support the Finance Partners to deal with conflicting priorities and ensure that financial opportunities and risks are quantified and understood at all levels of the Trust, and optimum value for money is achieved.
